This is a terrible school! The principle is incompetent and has poor judgment in hiring and retaining teachers and coaches. We have had the worst experience and this post is to prevent other parents from enrolling their children into this poor excuse for a high school!
Between Schoology and Infinite Campus, I am forced to spend many hours trying to find information on school work due, grades, attendance, quizzes, test results, etc. The information is never easy to find and both sites are extremely difficult to navigate. Getting information out of the teachers is nearly impossible, unless you are willing to meet them after school and don't be late or they will leave!
I absolutely hate this school. The grading system makes your life a living hell. The teachers in the math department don't care about the kids. Some of the security officers are more of friends then security officers. Don't enroll your child here!
i love that school it help me though my rough teens years and i know that all of the other teacher that i know either retired from there they are a very good school i am the alumin for their i was graduate from there in 1992 and i learn alot from there so people need to learn alot from this school like i did
I am giving it a 2 stars just because of the grading system before it was changed it was a 5 star.Falcon High has great teachers. My concerned for the last 2 years is that with the Standard Base Grading they will be burned out. With this new way of grading students can retake test to raise them " to master the topic". To do this teachers stay before and after school to reteach what was already taught in class. I don't see how this will help with getting them ready for college since the students are not motivated to do H.W. or stay on task since is not required, " study at tour own pase" I think that in the real world you do things on time correctlly or you get fired from your job. In college you have due dates and if you can't keep up with your class you fail. It is sad to overwork the teachers and have the students not being taught that responsability and time management is important.
Quoting the Falcon Flier doesn't really make a point or offer feedback that is helpful to anyone. It is not the fault of the school personel that they have so many students- they cannot control how the state funds education or whether or not the community is willing to support education by passing bonds and/or mill levys. For years I have watched teachers in this school district rise to the challenge of lack of funding, a historically pathetic and hostile board and a central office that is constantly in turmoil because of said board. They put kids first. Period. And that deserves a 10 star rating in my book.
